Itinerary For Twin Lakes MB Competition – Important Info!

Dear Marching Band Families,

I hope all are well and enjoyed some time off last week to rest and recharge!  We are entering the final 3 weeks of the season and have an exciting finish planned!  I have attached an itinerary for the competition this weekend at Grayson Co. High School in Leitchfield, KY.  Please read and observe all details carefully.  It is important that we are well organized and prepared for this commitment!

Please observe the schedule below for the week:

Wed. 10/13: Rehearsal 4-6 PM
Thurs. 10/14: Rehearsal 4-7 PM
Fri. 10/15: Homecoming Football Game. Call time TBA (be prepared for an early time) as I am waiting for confirmation on whether or not we are able to perform our show before the game due to homecoming festivities at halftime.  Unofficial uniform will be the HC Band Shirt, Black Shorts, Black Socks.
Sat. 10/16:  Grayson Co. Competition Day! Call time is 8:00 AM on the field.  Please understand that there is a PSAT being given at HC on Sat.  We will need to enter and exit the building through the exterior door by the band room during our morning rehearsal time and not use any other part of the building until our meeting time at 1:00 PM.  Also, please make note of the Central Standard Times on the itinerary and the late arrival time back to HC.  Please be prepared.

We must all work together as a family during the last few weeks of the season.  We are only guaranteed 5 more rehearsals and 2 weeks.  The students must earn the right to be named a semifinalist in class 5A at the Quarterfinal on Sat. 10/23.

Attendance is the key to success!  There were 5 or 6 students absent yesterday and we changed all of the 2nd movement.  We must build a culture of attendance and full participation!

Thank you for your effort this season!  I am looking forward to seeing the group grow, mature, and finish strong!

Sincerely,

Bill Kite
Director of Bands
Henry Clay High School
